thou,000 a year. the bush tax cut will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented to him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was response to something that the speaker gave them himself but i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house, even the speaker can't tell what they are going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. the house, we hear so often, is controlled by the republicans. and we acknowledge that. i would be most happy to move forward on something that senator mcconnell said they wouldn't filibuster over here that he would support and that boehner would support if it were reasonable. but right now we haven't heard anything. i don't know and it's none of my business, i guess, although i am very curious, if the speaker and the majority leader, the republican leader over here are even talking. i mean, what's going on here? mr. president, you can't le

that mitt romney was a lot closer to president obama and the election than he actually was. the truth is that the president had a small but consistent lead pretty much throughout the election. therefore we should not have been surprised when he won fairly comfortably. jon: christie, let me stop you there. >> let me finish my point. i'm sorry, the same was true we were talking about obamacare which was that there was this idea that we were going to be that obamacare was going to get struck down by the supreme court. i think a lot of members of the media were caught off-guard when it was upheld and upheld by the supreme court justice john roberts. that is why some people initially got it wrong. jon: the justice who essentially wrote that it may be bad policy but it's not our job as supreme court justices to, you know, fix the decisions of the people. the president got less than 51% of the vote. i mean it was, quite a landslide or, significant victory i guess in the electoral college but 51, less than, more than 49 is hardly a route. cal, one more take on the big stories of the year. >>

president obama and the democrats campaigned on, this past election cycle and by the way he won, was exactly this fall back plan or the small piece of tax cuts being extended for 98% of american families and 97% of small businesses. there is a bill in the senate sitting there right now that the house could actually vote on. they don't need to wait for anything to pass the senate. the house could call a vote on it right now and 98% of america's families could see protection of their tax cuts extended. so i think that is a strong position for the democrats. they won on this. the majority of american people agree that the 2% of the wealthiest in this country can afford to pay a little bit more. most wealthy people agree with that. >> you believe president and leaders prefer going over the cliff so they can raise taxes and blame the g.o.p. but republicans have the option of locking in tax cuts for most americans right now. >> i think the president does want to do that because as you said he can increase taxes, point the finger at the republicans but we need to have spending cuts. this is not an
